One of Australia’s most original and accomplished modern jazz soloists, alto saxophone legend Bernie McGann turns 75 later this year and SIMA kicks off the2012 season with his band in top form.

Mike Nock Trio 
Since his return from the US in 1985, pianist/composer Mike Nock has remained at the forefront of Australasian Jazz. With his most recent trio CD An Accumulation of Subtleties winning Best Australian Contemporary Jazz Album at the 2011 Bell Awards, playing an extensive Japanese tour in September and several concerts in New Zealand and Australia, 2011 was a good year for the group.

For his first SIMA gig of 2012 he debuts a new trio line-up, with long time collaborator bassist Brett Hirst joining drummer James Waples, to play a new repertoire with a fresh sound.
